I've done a little soul searching lately... Tried to spend some quiet time in reflection... Meditated on my life and future and plans and dreams... Opened myself up to critical self-examination...Stopped awhile to smell the roses...and I realize there's much to be done.
Maybe it's the beauty of spring...new beginnings...days that flirt and beckon for attention...air that smells sweet like youth- tart with memories- clear with goals...open with possibilities.
Maybe it's hormones...
But I really feel as though I need to step back from the computer for a week or two. Let my writing go dormant... hoping it will flourish like that wild tangle of honeysuckle... telling myself that I'm digging a big hole the wrong direction...that perhaps I should open a new door...
Then again, maybe it's because I have so much to do... gardening...yard work... planting... painting... bookwork... dieting...organizing- that it makes blogging seem so selfish and juvenile...I feel like I've exposed my heart here and it's drying out a little.
So, I'm going to take a week or two hiatus. A mini vacation. A section of time to relish in the beauty of early morning...to listen to the birds...walk in the cool breeze...smell the greenness of new grass...watch the stars as they line up across the heavens...
...find a little part of me that feels so lost.
Check back in a few weeks. Maybe by then I'll have revived my good mood and hopefulness.
Sorry I won't be checking your blogs while away, either. But I will return, my friends.
Now- it's out to inhale this wonderful day and all the gifts it has for me.
See you soon.
